Hi, I am Shankar, originally from India, now living and working in the UAE. A simple, honest and down to earth soul, I am totally addicted to photography, wildlife, music and travel. I love to interact with people from different cultures and ethnic backgrounds. My other interests are modes of transportation (especially trains), nature and wildlife. I firmly believe that a smile costs nothing, so give it liberally. It makes the world a happier place. Don't pull everyone else down with your own problems and pet peeves. And yes, I'm always ready for a good laugh. My philosophy in life: if a thing is worth doing at all, it's worth doing well. Favourite reading: Travelogues.

I started my solo travels in 2008, slightly later in life, at age 49, roughly 2 weeks after a stressful & painful breakup & the breaking up of my home with a whimpering 17 year old son to pacify, and my own slightly diabetic condition. Travel turned out to be a perfect remedy for my soul, the perfect caffeine fix for my frayed nerves, an ointment for my wounds & a perfect elixir to keep me sane. I haven't looked back ever since & have also managed to sort of soothe my son's nerves as well. wouldn't travel any other way now.
